BOTULINUM TOXIN, Genève
Botulinum toxin: the reference treatment for expression wrinkles
The CLEAGE clinic places botulinum toxin at the center of the patient's aesthetic care because it is the most effective and natural treatment in aesthetic medicine.
Botulinum toxin is a molecule that relaxes muscles and thus prevents and/or treats expression lines.
This treatment requires total know-how and expertise to offer you a natural and above all "non-freeze" result.
To achieve this, small quantities injected precisely into muscle areas result in a rested face, regaining its harmony.
When botulinum toxin is coupled with hyaluronic acid injections, a balance between muscle relaxation and the replacement of lost facial volumes appears, making it possible to obtain the ideal treatment.
Botulinum toxin is injected at specific points on the face to relax muscles that contract too strongly with age.
The biggest mistake would be to inject too large quantities which is giving an artificial and unattractive result.Thanks to the know-how of CLEAGE doctors, fine and subtle injections at key points of the face will give a natural result and an immediate radiance boost.
Botulinum toxin, therefore, acts only on expression lines, also called dynamic facial wrinkles.
The objective is to use an optimal dose of botulinum toxin to obtain a perfectly natural result, without being frozen.
After a few months, the action of the botulinum toxin diminishes and the muscle gradually regains its former strength.
Botulinum toxin injections can be performed all year round, whatever the season.

The CLEAGE doctors in Geneva will precisely examine the anatomy of your face as well as its specificities in order to carry out tailor-made botulinum toxin injections creating a totally natural and harmonious effect.
The injections will be performed with very fine needles making the injection session perfectly comfortable. The recurrence of botulinum toxin injections will erase the deepest wrinkles and avoid their aggravation, hence the preventive nature of botulinum toxin.
As soon as expression wrinkles begin to appear on the skin, botulinum toxin injections can be considered.
It is recommended to start with small quantities of injections as soon as possible to do preventive anti-aging work on your face.
